The weather was showery when myself and teenage son visited but this did not distract from our enjoyment. There were plenty of large plants and trees to shelter you from the rain. Although not on the scale of some of the other gardens e.g Heligan it is beautifully and very cleverly laid out so you can take different paths without... More

The gardens were stunning. There are a few play areas for the children to find hidden away, the bear trail was enjoyed by the little one. The views were superb. The beach has a small place to grab some ice cream or a snack and although small is safe, and pebbles were great for skimming. Parking was free but the... More

Good place to visit if you have time to spare but nothing extraordinary. Nice walk ending at the beach with small cafe. Main cafe was good serving good cream tea.

Lovely gardens....lots of colour and areas to explore. A great family day out. The bamboo section was really impressive as was the giant rhubarb. The ice cream break on the pebble beach at half way was most welcome and the hut served as a makeshift shelter when we had a short sharp shower.

I first came here around 18 years ago with my mum and wanted to revisit with my children when we came to Cornwall for the week. It didn't disappoint. The children loved darting up and down the many paths and playing in the play area. We didn't eat in the cafe as we meandered down to the beach and had... More

If you are into gardens, this is the place to come. Staggeringly beautiful; good for children as well. Fab cafe with good value, well prepared fresh food.

Beautiful informal gardens in a stunning valley which wanders gently down to a lovely estuary shoreline (where you can also get refreshments before the walk back). There is much to absorb in an ever-changing landscape as the varied planting offers different interest on your walk in both directions.

Whilst I refrain from giving this amenity the lowest score, I could not enthuse enough to rate it higher than poor. The restaurant is not good and anyone who says differently is very easily pleased, out of five of us 'dining', none managed to clean their plates, in fact the service needs a fresh injection of. Quality cooking. The gardens... More

I'm not a gardener and I don't normally 'do gardens' but this place is just to die for! So much variety, beautiful walks and the views are just fantastic. After exploring the gardens, it's worth a visit to the coffee shop - very pleasant and good variety. VERY helpful staff! All in all a memorable experience A word of caution... More

Lots of variety of lunchtime food and drink and very pleasant area to sit . The coffee was good and the view into the garden was interesting.
